How to arrange a Cremation and Burial in Melbourne
For cremation funerals and burial funerals, our Funeral Home Partners in Melbourne can arrange and plan personalised funerals that tells the story of a loved ones life.
In recent times, approximately 80% of funeral services in Melbourne are cremations and 20% are burials. This does change year to year and sometimes there is an increase in the percentage of burials. Most cremations of the departed in Melbourne are controlled by the Government Cemeteries and can be held at various locations.
eziFunerals Funeral Home Partners can arrange a funeral service to be held in at a Cemetery Chapel or any other location before the cremation committal. The funeral service culminates in the committal of the casket. The lovely thing about holding the preceding funeral service in a cemetery chapel is that once the service is complete, and the loved one has been committed for cremation, the coffin or casket is lowered directly into the crematorium. The coffin or loved one does not then have to be transported any to any additional locations.
Most cemetery chapels are purpose built for Melbourne Funerals and have condolence lounges in which families may receive the condolences from mourners as well as the options to purchase light refreshments once the funeral service has concluded if they wish.
There are a lot of legislative and administrative tasks that must be taken care of with Birth Deaths and Marriages, cemeteries and crematoriums. Your eziFunerals Funeral Home Partner will complete these tasks accurately and in a timely manner.

Types of Funerals available for Families in Melbourne
There are many different options for funerals and memorial services. Funerals are usually held at a dedicated funeral home, cemetery or crematorium. Common things people consider when organising a service include:
- the location of a burial plot or memorial
- whether burial or cremation and what kind of coffin
- the date (particularly if guests are travelling)
- who to invite to the service
- who will speak at the service and what might be said at the service
- what is in the memorial booklet
- what clothing you would like the deceased person to wear
- whether you want to hold a wake
The following is a list of the types of funeral services our Funeral Home Partners can arrange that honours and celebrates your loved one’s life.
Cremation Funeral Service
An unattended no Funeral Service with no mourners. Where a memorial service or scattering of ashes may occur at a later date. This is also popular before an Intement Funeral Service where once the ashes are received, the ashes are interred into an existing grave.
Cremation Chapel Funeral Service
Intimate, where only immediate family and friends are present. A simple funeral service where a small group of family and friends can be present in the chapel to pay their respect to the departed. A simple cremation costs significantly less than a traditional funeral. It can be intimate with a Funeral Director and the Chapel attendant welcoming close family into the chapel. You can select the music to be played and Pallbearers to carry the coffin into the chapel and placed upon the Catafalque. Any family who wishes to speak, say a prayer or perform a readying are welcome to do so. Our Funeral Home Partners can also offer reflection with rosemary sprigs and then there will be the final goodbye – the cremation committal
Cremation Chapel Funeral Service
Full service with family, friends and all mourners present. Invite all family and friends so that everyone can pay their last respects.
Dual Service Cremation Funeral Service
Where a funeral service may be held at one location such as a local church, then the hearse and mourners cortege to the cemetery chapel for a Cremation Committal.
Burial Funeral Services
Single Service Graveside Service and Burial Committal
A single service graveside service is a formal ceremony at one location. There is no procession to a cemetery or crematorium afterwards. Examples of this are a graveside service, service in a crematorium chapel or a service held at a chapel, church or other venue followed by a non-attended cremation or burial.
Dual Service Graveside Service and Burial Committal – eg, Church Service and then Graveside Service.
A dual service graveside service is a formal ceremony held at two locations. The first service takes place at a chapel, church or other chosen venue followed by a procession to the cemetery or crematorium where a second, and usually shorter, final committal service is held.
Memorial Services – Scattering of Ashes
A Memorial Service is when the burial or cremation has already taken place or when the coffin is not present. Often families will choose to have a private burial or cremation followed by a more public Memorial or Thanksgiving Service. Your family can choose to make these arrangements themselves if you wish. You do not need to be a Funeral Director. Just request permission to do so from the location you would like and then make your arrangements as you see fit for your family.
Funeral Notices for the Funeral Service
A funeral notice in Melbourne, Victoria is an option for publicly advising of a loved ones upcoming funeral service and can be placed by the family directly but normally through their Melbourne funeral director. They can be paid Newspaper listing ads in the Classifieds or in Obituaries. The price for the funeral notice in a Newspaper depends on the amount of content and space required to place the funeral information.
Death and funeral notices are normally short and usually provide the basic but important information pertinent to the funeral. A death and funeral notice can contain the person’s name, from where they were know to reside, as well as the time, date and location of the funeral.
With modern technology additional options and platforms are available for families to communicate with others to provide information regarding the upcoming funeral service details, obituaries and death notices. Families can send an email or a social media message to a large group with the details of the funeral service if they wish at no cost.
